From MPS director of athletics Chad Davis:
Good morning! I hope that everyone had a great weekend and are looking forward to the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next week. MPS will not be in session all next week as we observe Thanksgiving.....All in-season activities may resume this week as MHS and WRMS continue with the distance learning model. All student-athletes need to confirm your practice schedules for this week with your head coach. Let's hope that our activities can stay on schedule! Good Luck to our high school and junior high wrestling teams who are scheduled to open their seasons up this week!
COVID19 Event Update
Our county stayed at Orange Level 2 for this week. A mask or face covering is mandatory for everyone in attendance at any Miami Athletics event upon entry, and when in the concession or restroom areas. Our seating capacities will be kept at a maximum of 75% at all home events scheduled for this week.
HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL
The Wardogs ended their season last Friday night at Hilldale in the playoff play in round falling 42-0 to the Hornets. Despite the many challenges that came with COVID, they were able to play ten games this season. There were several players who unfortunately missed a game due to COVID related issues, but overall it was good to see Wardog Football get their season in. Equipment check-in is taking place this afternoon.
The Wardogs and Lady Wardogs continue their pre-season prep leading up to their regular season openers on Dec. 1 at Verdigris. Both teams have scrimmages scheduled over the next few weeks.
The 7th and 8th grade boys and girls' teams were scheduled to participate in the Jay Tournament last week, but Jay canceled the tournament due to their middle school being shut down due to COVID. Our 7th and 8th grade teams are now scheduled to open their seasons at home vs. Verdigris on Monday, November 30th. The 6th grade teams are scheduled to play next on December 2nd at home vs. Grove.
The high school wrestling team is scheduled to open their season this Thursday, November 19th at Tahlequah (duels) starting at approximately 7:00pm following the junior high matches.
The junior high wrestling team is scheduled to open their season tomorrow night at Seneca with wrestling starting at 5:30pm. They will travel to Tahlequah this Thursday for duals starting at 6:00pm.
